GREGORY GORDON

1909-1993

Born in Kovno, Lithuania.

Graduated from Moscow Institute of Visual Arts in 1934. Studied with S.Gerasimov, A.Deineka. Participated in all major Soviet Art shows since 1934. One of the best known masters of the official Soviet Art. Gregory was highly decorated during WWII. He was entrusted to paint Stalin's and Lenin's portraits, military men, famous soviet scientists and entertainers. These portraits are on the top of the Soviet Realism Art. Gregory Gordon was a warm, kind and talented person who gained official recognition by his artistic talent, and not by intrigues, as did many of his colleagues by Socialist Realism.
His works are exhibited in the largest Russian State museums and galleries.
